Jackson County Drug Free Council
Each county in Indiana has a Local Coordinating Council (LCC), which is the planning and coordinating body for addressing alcohol and other drug problems. LCC members include volunteers from a variety of organizations including education, treatment, social services, and local police.
In 2017, JCUW was asked to assemble and facilitate groups and organizations that were working with the substance use issue. Within the framework of those meetings, we, together, created action teams and 3, 6, and 12 month goals in the areas of Prevention & Education, Intervention, Treatment, Recovery, and Public Awareness. Each team has recruited members with knowledge, personal experience, and/or organizational support to help drive long-term impact. To learn more about how you can get engaged in an action team contact Charlotte Moss at 812-523-3472 or come to a Drug Free Council Meeting the second Tuesday of the Month, 4 PM, at the Community Foundation; or visit: drugfreecouncil.org, or like Jackson County Drug Free Council on Facebook.
